leaking goldwing

2008 goldwing. I always have changed my oil. I overfilled it a little. I drive it and park it while out with no problem. When I get home and put it in my garage and let it cool overnight with dry floor. It's dry when I go to leave. When I go to leave and stand it up to exit it leaves a 6 inch thin line of oil. I took out maybe 6 ounces and it still did it the next day. I sucked out a touch more and oil level is good. It will stop sooner or later. My question is "is this normal and has anyone ever seen this?" Thanks, marc

I know on my dirt bikes there is an overflow drain that just leaks out on to the floor. Its a pretty slow processes so it may not be obvious when it starts/stops. I would just keep an eye on the oil level until it stops leaking and you should be fine

I wonder if you overfilled it more than just a little. I have over filled my 2010 GL1800 and no issues like this. I'm talking a half quart too much too. One reason why I just buy it by the gallon now is that makes it impossible to overfill with a filter change.

overfill

I took out maybe 8 ounces and it's just a little below full cold on the center stand and did leak again today. Whe I stop anywhere for a hour or so it doesn't leak and once I am home it stays dry until I go lo leave the next day.. Amazing

GoldWings don't leak! I don't think they are capable of leaking.

Are you sure it's oil and not coffee from the built in Espresso machine?

Thank You all for your input. I taped paper under the bike today and started it. There was a leak on the paper and it's the oil filter seal. That is why it only happens when it's cold. after it expands it expands. it still wasn't real wet there. It seems tight so it's a bad "O" ring. Easy fix and I feel stupid by not starting with paper under it.

It's good practice to lubricate the filter gasket with oil so it slips easily as the filter is being seated on the mating surface.
